Summary
"Blending social, intellectual, legal, medical, gender, and cultural history, Segregation's Science: Eugenics and Society in Virginia examines how eugenic theory and practice bolstered Virginia's various cultures of segregation - rich from poor, sick from well, able from disabled, male from female, and black and Native American from white. Of interest to historians, educators, biologists, physicians, and social workers, this study reminds readers that science is socially constructed"--Provided by publisher
